LA Valley College's Accreditation Status Reaffirmed by the ACCJC

Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) received formal notification on July 9 from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) that its accreditation status has been reaffirmed.

Based on the college's self-evaluation, the visiting evaluation team's report and review by the ACCJC at its June 2016 meeting, the Commission reaffirmed LAVC's accredited status and is requiring a follow-up report in 18 months to verify progress on the team's recommendations for improvement. 

LAVC received several commendations from the visiting team including its commitment to student success, its exemplary programs, its proactive approach to expanding opportunities for students to succeed, its commitment to the environment including its Urban Forest, and its participatory governance structure that fosters greater transparency in decision making.

All nine Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) colleges, including LAVC, and the district office underwent a historic accreditation reaffirmation process. The LACCD is the first multi-college district to be reviewed under the new ACCJC standards, and it was the first time all nine LACCD colleges and the LACCD office was visited by 10 separate visiting teams at the same time as part of its comprehensive accreditation evaluation.
